Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A man was arrested early Wednesday morning, shortly after leading police on a chase.

Officers said they attempted to stop the driver because his car did not have a front license plate.  He sped off and officers gave chase. During the chase, officers said they saw the man throw beer and a small bag of marijuana out of the window.

He was arrested a short time later on West 31st Street near Alba in northwest Houston.  Officers said he admitted to running because he knew he had warrants out for his arrest.
